Hey everyone this is a park bench business holder I made for my father who just got a promotion at his work. This design was inspired by Hallmark who made a very beautiful one! Mine is made of Walnut and Maple finished with danish oil.

Any comments are welcome!

Thanks, Greg

Really nice job on the bench and in very short order my I add! You did a great jog getting close on the proportions. You should get a lot of comments about it at work. Thanks again, Hallmark

Could also be a church pew for a member of the clergy. Add a tiny cross.
